Execution in Deniliquin Gaol. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 23 December 1882

Execution in Deniliquin Gaol. THE condemned criminal, Henry Tester, sentenced to death on July last for the murder of a little girl, Louisa Preston, at Moria, was executed at Deniliquin on Thursday morning last. For two or three minutes after the bolt had been drawn Tester struggled violently, it being evident that the neck was not broken, but that he was suffering death by strangulation. His body showed signs of life for 20 minutes after, and he was observed to breathe for a quarter of an hour after the fall took place. It was indeed a ghastly sight, and the few civilians present expressed their opinion that the hanging was a bungling piece of business. It appears that the drop was not sufficiently great when taken into considera tion with the lightness of the convict's body. After a lapse of thirty-five minutes. Dr. Neyes, the gaol surgeon, pronounced life to be extinct, and the body was taken down. -Abridged from Pastoral Times.
